About Mela - Harborne

Mela describe their restaurant experience as the art of fine dining, and we do not hesitate to agree, especially if you, like us, agree that fine Indian and Bangladeshi cuisine matched by professional service in an environment that exudes restrained elegance qualifies as fine dining. Mela’s Harborne High Street premises are fully-licensed as well, with a great range of fine wine and premium beer available, all paired again with some of Birmingham’s finest Indian cuisine.

More about Mela - Harborne, Birmingham

Mela offers a monthly special that ensures fans of this Harborne High Street Indian restaurant keep coming back for more, and are kept pleasantly surprised when they do. Take, for example, a four course meal for rock bottom prices – a special mixed platter starter, your choice of main course (except seafood), rice or naan, and a coffee or tea to finish. That said, eating in any day of the week is a pleasure, with Mela offering Birmingham’s picky curry lovers a great a la carte and takeaway menu, brimming with signature Indian and Bangladeshi specialties.

Mela’s chefs know a thing or three about the regional specifics of Indian and Bangladeshi cuisine, and something again about how to use only the freshest ingredients to create beautifully presented dishes. Traditional cooking methods are consistently used in this Harborne High Street kitchen, and the service staff are more than capable of advising diners on the options available. A highlight of the menu is Mela’s tawa, which alone should bring Birmingham’s curious connoisseurs down to this special restaurant. This signature dish takes chicken, lamb, king prawns or vegetables, cooking them with fresh garlic, shallots, mixed bell peppers and a secret tawa sauce. It’s a semi-dry dish bursting with flavour and served sizzling on a tawa dish. Recommended by Mela’s chef, it comes doubly recommended by us.
